AM - 5

AM2 - 20. I’ve done so many 15 mile runs over the past few months they genuinely start to feel short, not the case for 20 miles. it’s a lot easier mentally to see you’re 10 miles in and say “5 miles left” than “10 miles left”. still good stuff, 2:59 last half

PM - 5. felt like crap. 4 hours wasn’t enough time to bounce back from 20.

PM2 - 15. felt a lot better than I did at 4PM

in case you didn’t notice i am tapering for tokyo2020 rn

AM - 4. felt good all things considered. wanted to get 10 and probably could have but it rained all night so intramurals were basically just a giant puddle, and as muddy water soaked my shoes complacency flooded my mind

PM - 11. felt a million times better than 4 hours earlier.

PM2 - 15. a week and a half ago i ran a 30-mile long run and said it was my most impressive running feat. i think the past 3 days top that, but i think the most impressive part was i ran 41 miles on a turf football field in the last 24 hours and didn’t get hurt. that’s a lot of turns. i work a 13 hour hospital shift tomorrow and i hope my good karma comes to me in the form of being able to recover during it

10 after work. ran on the turf field again and ankles were more pissed than a potty at a beer party. next time i’ll just take the puddles and grass route instead. 13 hours on my feet wasn’t kind on the legs but kind enough to let me finish the run. last shift that long until christmas though so hopefully they bounce back like they normally do.

AM - 5. felt exhausted mentally when i woke up but pretty good by the end of the run.

PM - 15 with the last half mile in 2:27. pretty sure this was my fastest intramural run ever

PM2 - 5 after work. Basically finished the 15, ate, showered, worked my hardest shift yet by a landslide, and ran again, so legs complained a little bit but nothing compared to running on the constantly turning turf route, and even then that was doable. Don't work again until after finals so if the legs feel good again tomorrow it's gonna be a good sign.

AM - 5. very very easy

AM2 - 20. even though the effort wasn’t too much more than earlier today the pace was just a few seconds short of being a full 2 minutes per mile faster, fastest pace this week i believe. just felt good. finished at 10:30 so i should be able to actually get a bit of recovery in before the next run.

PM - 5 easy. felt much better than i did on this run on tuesday. got in a solid nap in between runs.

PM - 15 easy. legs felt way good but it was very windy and while i can handle headwind, i’m a couple weeks from my anniversary of my last haircut and my hair is very curly and bouncy anyway so the tailwind turned it into a golden curtain covering my face where i literally couldn’t see. ended up having to just use a hand to hold it back whenever the wind was to my back because i think headbands are wack and i’d rather die than have a man-bun

i don’t know what i expected to feel finishing a 200 mile week, but i didn’t feel anything. i guess it’s good; this isn’t the end-all of training and lauding myself would just get me complacent. definitely could have ran more considering i had half a week of classes, a lab final and worked 30 hours on top of everything i ran. another thing - my legs are absolutely shredded compared to 7 days ago. webs of veins up my legs, biceps, i even have veins on my chest now. i’ve always had crazy wrist veins but now it looks like a paper cut could kill me. and to end the post on a happier note how i felt today put my mind to ease that this mileage jump wasn’t suicidal and could actually be doable. if you think otherwise keep it to yourself unless you’re also a member of the 200-mile week club ;)
